About this project

Tide Marks is the result of an on-going pre-occupation with the places where land meets sea. The beach and its hinterland can be the richest source of experience and discovery. What appears in this series of contemplative art works on paper and fabric carries an essence of the coastal landscapes they embody. Marks are made on fabric directly from found items. Impressions are made on paper like imprints in wet sand. Rust prints and collagraph join with the flow of hand-stitched or woven yarns.
